Elle Design Studio

If you’re looking for modern design on the Shoreline, Erica at Elle Design in Chester is your girl. The shop features a selection of unusual pieces: a massive antique beam fashioned into a contemporary coffee table, a 50’s side chair wearing faux ostrich upholstery, a sexy, low slung natural linen sofa that could live happily anywhere. Erica adheres to an organic modern aesthetic, using sustainable resources and local artisans; but don’t call her minimalist. And she doesn’t believe you need to start with a clean slate. She’ll insist on incorporating your favorite, sentimental pieces into the mix and help you build from there. Combining color with texture is her particular genius. A design board I spied for a client’s kitchen was fresh and original: an ocean blue resin with a reflective backing for the island, shiny penny tiles in earthy shades for the backsplash, gray Ceasarstone quartz countertops with a deep brown cork floor. Lovely.
